The Roster for the FIBA EuroBasket 2015 qualification second round

Competitive record

Eurobasket 1951

Denmark debuted in the European championships at Eurobasket 1951 in Paris. They were defeated in all four of their preliminary round games, going 0–4 to take 5th place in the group. In a direct elimination match against Luxembourg, the Danes took a 46–45 lead with 5 seconds left. A final half-court shot by Luxembourg bounced off the rim, giving Denmark its first win and advancing the team to the first classification round. They picked up another win there, against Scotland, finishing third place in the group at 1–2. Their third win of the tournament came against Portugal in the 13–16 classification semifinal before Denmark lost to Switzerland in the 13/14 match to finish 14th of 18 teams with a record of 3–7.

Eurobasket 1953

Two years later, at Eurobasket 1953 in Moscow, the Denmark squad did not fare as well. They dropped 8 decisions (3 in the preliminary round, 3 in the first classification round, and the two-second-round classification games) on their way to a 16th place finish out of the 17 teams.

Eurobasket 1955

Denmark lost all 8 of their games again at Eurobasket 1955 in Budapest, this time finishing last of the 18 teams competing.
